Pierre-Louis Graizon

About

Pierre-Louis Graizon is a French artist born in 1992 in Montpellier, now based in Brussels. He graduated from the Beaux Arts de Nantes and then took the master's degree in Accessories at La Cambre.

It is the ambivalence of a search for the exceptional in a society globalized by the media exposure of the individual that has motivated his work for several years.
To this end, he takes the opposite position from the technological means that seem appropriate for this research, by resorting to a practice that is as artisanal as it is solitary. This practice combines millinery, leatherwork, gilding, and sewing.

Even though the materials he uses are mainly "recycled", he always looks for a uniqueness or a reference to the culture of luxury, current or past: snake skins, felt hats, naturalized animals, and sculptures from the tourist "mass distribution". It is not the "objects" that matter here, but their charge and the material from which they are composed, which, when arranged in a different form, allows the wearer to acquire a new identity.

The "animal" nature of the materials chosen is dictated by the historical connection to luxury, social distinction and spirituality, but also by the uniqueness of each element, and by the durable nature of organic materials.
